Chaps, I know some of you are quite keen on stats ( like Rich going to No.2 in the top posters ) but as I was scrolling through I noticed the number of views on "Have you driven your Morgan" which was quite astounding, over 12 million views as compared to the various numbers on the ( "How do you fix it?) sections . This would seem to show how reliable Morgans actually are compared to the faults that do occur and that we all love driving them.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

Well, I for one am not interested in stats, but I think if those that are, analyse distance traveled vs faults or repairs over the period maybe disappointed compared to a tin top, but then, if you analyse smiles per mile for Mog vs tin top you would be most pleased.

I love stats! smile

That particular topic has been going since 11/1/2014, which is 2139 days. 12,356,565 views over that time equates to 5,777 views per day, or about one view every 15 seconds!

I think the only conclusion we can draw from those figures is that long-running threads can cause an aberration in the forum software!

Update: OK, I've looked closer. Doing some precise timing on this link I can see that, at this moment, the view count on that thread increases consistently by 1 every 30 seconds. I suspect that one or more of the spiders has a permanent connection to that particular topic and is monitoring it for changes.

Ah...statistics.....
Here’s one.
The average person has less than two legs.

Why?
Most have two, some have one or none.
As far as is known none have 3 or more.
Therefore the average must be less than 2.
So why do shoes get sold in pairs? The average person only needs one.

Rolf Harris could use an extra shoe if you have one spare.

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

You can do a lot with averages. Chris Hoy and I have a total of 6 Olympic gold medals between us, that's an average of 3 each.

That's nothing. Michael Phelps and I share a total of 23 Olympic gold medals between us, so an average of 11.5 each.
